As we already mentioned, for businesses planning to enter the Chinese market, a .CN domain is a must. Even if you're not planning to build out your .CN website now, we recommend buying your .CN domain name to protect your brand. If you don't register it someone else might and it is much more difficult and expensive to get a domain once it is owned. If you aren't planning to build out a .CN website, you can simply redirect traffic back to your main website with our free domain forwarding.
If your main website is your .CN website, we recommend buying common misspellings of your domain name to catch that traffic and redirect it back to your main website. You should also consider buying your domain name on other top-level domains (TLDs) that make sense for your website. For example, China also has a Chinese language country code domain (ccTLD), .中国, that you may want also want to register.
.CN supports internationalized domain names (IDNs) in Chinese! Use our IDN search to find and register the right Chinese .CN domain name now!
Please be aware that you can't buy both a traditional Chinese and a simplified Chinese domain if you are buying an international .CN domain.
